Rangers Waiver News

I know this happened earlier in the day but for you Blueshirt fans that missed it, here is what happened. From Bob McKenzie via Twitter:

- @NYfan1610 NYR on hook for Brashear cap hit NO MATTER WHAT, even if abducted by aliens (35+ rule). But they can save a few $ cash on buyout.

- Today’s waivers: Oystrick (ANA), Moreau, Nilsson, O’Sullivan (EDM), Fedoruk (TB), Brashear, Rissmiller, Voros (NYR). All buyout eligible.

What do you folks think?

Lohan Tussels with Avery and Voros?

I know that you folks want some Rangers-related news but this is the best I could do. It involves Sean Avery and Aaron Voros. More from The New York Post:

Lindsay Lohan started another fight in a club—this time with New York Ranger skaters Aaron Voros and Sean Avery at 1Oak. The troubled starlet threw a drink over Voros’ model girlfriend, Jessica Stam, and then tried to get all three thrown out of the Wildfox fall-collection party the other night. A spy relates, “Lindsay threw a fit because she wanted to be at their table near the DJ. But she claimed she didn’t want to sit with Aaron and said, ‘He’s my ex-boyfriend. I don’t want him anywhere near me.’ Voros denied knowing her. A drink then flew in Jessica’s face, and Lindsay demanded their table be moved out. Club bosses refused and tried to calm her down. Stam, Voros and Avery were shocked but didn’t retaliate, and Lindsay left shortly afterward.”

Nice, right?

Aaron Voros: A Thief?

This is an interesting piece on New York Rangers’ forward and hopeful for the 2009-2010 season, Aaron Voros. The blog begins by explaining what Voros did/didn’t do for the Blueshirts this year and then goes on to something much more interesting:

We don’t know how to say this exactly - but there were police reports this summer of a robbery in Rochester on August 30th. A convenience store on North Main Street was robbed at knife point in broad daylight.

Why am I mentioning this terrible event? As you can see in the photo - the suspect was wearing… well, I will quote the local paper Fosters Daily Democrat here:

Police released a photograph of the suspect from a surveillance camera at the store and describe the suspect as a white male who was wearing a New York Rangers hockey jersey bearing the number 34. The jersey is mostly white in color, with red and blue lettering, police said.

The suspect wore a Ranger Jersey? Number 34? But that’s ... Aaron Voros’ number!

Not Bad

The New York Rangers went into the NHL All-Star break last night with a 4-2 victory over the Anaheim Ducks.

The team got strong performances from Henrik Lundqvist (not a surprise), Scott Gomez (1 goal and 1 assist), Markus Naslund (1 goal and 1 assist), Blair Betts (blocked a few shots and scored a shorthanded goal) as well as from their special teams, as the team scored two power play goals and two shorthanded goals.

With the victory, the Blueshirts head into the break with a 28-16-4 record, good enough for 60 points and the top spot in the Atlantic Division for now. As such, as inconsistent as this team has been, Blueshirt fans really cannot complain too much.

Quick Hits

Tonight, the New York Rangers take on the Anaheim Ducks at Madison Square Garden and will look to take over the top spot in the Atlantic Division as the New Jersey Devils currently sit atop the Atlantic thanks to a 3-1 win over the Nashville Predators.

According to various beat reporter blogs, Petr Prucha and Lauri Korpikoski will be the scratches. Aaron Voros and Dan Fritsche will take their spots in the lineup.

Now, I know that the Ducks are a physical hockey club but I believe that by taking out Prucha and Korpikoski, the team is potentially sacrificing at least three-five scoring opportunities. When your offense isn’t that strong as it is, why would head coach Tom Renney do something like this?

Rangers in Chi-Town

Tonight will be an important test for the New York Rangers as they take on the Chicago Blackhawks at the United Center. The Blackhawks are currently fourth in the Western Conference and sport an impressive home record of 16-4-3.

Back on October 10, the Blueshirts defeated the Blackhawks in their home opener at Madison Square Garden but this is a much different Hawks team than the one that was on the ice three months ago. They have a new coach in Joel Quenneville, are getting scoring across the board from the likes of Patrick Kane, Jonathan Toews, Patrick Sharp and Martin Havlat, playing solid defensively and are getting excellent goaltending from both Nikolai Khabibulin and Cristobal Huet.

“Outside of the skill they were able to exhibit back then, I think they will be pretty different (tonight),” Rangers’ head coach Tom Renney told the team’s web site. “I think there is a level of commitment and discipline to their game now.”

Don’t Give It Away

The New York Rangers have won two of their last four games (had a 2-1 OT loss to the Buffalo Sabres and 6-3 spanking at the hands of the Montreal Canadiens) and look to continue their strong defensive play and timely goal scoring when they take on the New York Islanders tonight at the Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum.

After head coach Scott Gordon explained to the media that he wants to play his youngsters more, it’s easy to think that the Rangers may skate all over the Isles tonight and come up with two points. However folks, remember that this is the Blueshirts and that they’ve lost games like this to the Isles before.

As such, Rangers’ head coach Tom Renney is keeping the same lineup he used on Saturday night in the team’s 2-0 shutout victory over the Ottawa Senators. This means that Aaron Voros and Dan Fritsche will once again be scratches.

What the Rangers need to Work on

In his Rangers Report Blog this afternoon, Sam Weinman gave a few reasons why the Rangers are 9-2-1.

He cited the play of netminders Henrik Lundqvist and Stephen Valiquette, reporting to training camp early and in shape, a favorable schedule and unexpected contributions from guys like Aaron Voros and Fredrik Sjostrom.

These are all obvious reasons but just because they’re 9-2-1 doesn’t mean that everything is perfect.

So Much for 82-0

If there was a team that the New York Rangers were going to lost, it was last night’s against the Buffalo Sabres. Much like the Rangers, the Sabres were undefeated (2-0), getting timely goal-scoring, playing solid defense and getting excellent play from their goaltender (Ryan Miller).

As such, it should come as no surprise that the Blueshirts lost their first game of the regular season last night to the Sabres by a score of 3-1. The team did not generate many scoring chances and took bad penalties, two things that usually lead to a loss.

Aaron Voros: A Shining Star on Broadway

If one were to ask a knowledgeable New York Ranger fan who would be leading the team in scoring a week into the season, I am sure that he or she would have mentioned the likes of Scott Gomez, Chris Drury, Markus Naslund given all of their talent and experience in the National Hockey League.

Would you believe me if I told you that five games into the young season, Aaron Voros would be leading the Blueshirts in points with seven points each? Well you better beacuse that’s the case.

Rangers’ Second Line looks like First

Instead of relying on their first line to do all the goal scoring, the New York Rangers got three out of their four goals from the second line.

“I certainly liked that line tonight, as I’m sure every Rangers fan did,” Rangers head coach Tom Renney told the team’s website. “You could see that with the sum of their parts they could play as they did tonight, and it came together nicely.”
